August Open Mic Night via Zoom!

We are in midsummer (in the cultural, not astronomic sense) and the speed with which it flies by has always made me wistful.

August feels like the middle of my favourite story. I don't want the story to end, but I feel it approaching, and it makes me want to hang on and savour each moment all the more.

With this in mind, I propose that our theme for August Open Mic will be "In the middle." Don't let it hinder you, though, if it doesn't inspire you. Just bring your best.

We have an ongoing opportunity to share the recordings of our open mic events on 107.3 FM in Saint John, the UNBSJ/community station. Anyone who'd like to participate in the reading, but not in the public broadcast, can be edited out. Airing these events does increase and enhance the profile of WFNB, as well as that of our readers. But we certainly understand if you'd prefer to keep it just between us. We will be adding the recorded live readings to our members-only section--if you'd like to be edited out of any of them, just say the word.

Poetry, prose, screenplay--even songs. Whatever is keeping your creative juices flowing, we wanna hear it! You know the drill: a maximum of 15 readers, with five minutes each to read. Just want to listen? The public can register as audience only. Looking forward to hearing you all on Saturday, August 6.

What else is New at the WFNB?
